L'histoire du film débute en 1945, l'année de la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, juste avant la Guerre israélo-arabe de 1948-1949. Une famille juive d'Europe migre vers la Palestine encore mandataire du Royaume-Uni afin d'éviter les persécutions. Le couple de Fania et d'Arieh Oz ne s'entend plus. Tandis qu'Arieh est plutôt confiant pour son avenir, Fania est traumatisée par la guerre et le fait d'avoir dû fuir son pays. Tous les deux ne restent ensemble que grâce à leur fils de 10 ans, Amos. Il découvre la poésie et la littérature selon un certain point de vue, expliqué par sa mère. Au fil du temps, constatant que la nouvelle vie dont elle rêvait ne voit pas le jour, Fania devient de plus en plus triste et finit même par se suicider, laissant à son fils une certaine vision de la littérature qui l'influencera dans ses écrits toute sa vie. L'histoire se termine en 1953, cinq ans après la proclamation de l'État d’Israël, quand Amos, maintenant âgé de 18 ans, s'en va habiter dans un kibboutz.

The plot begins in 11th-century England, much knowledge having been lost . It is the Dark Ages, and the Church is fighting against 'black magic'. The medical knowledge of Greek physicians like Hippocrates and Galen had been lost to the medicine of medieval Europe, until taught later in schools such as the School of Salerno (after the Arabic-Latin translation movement of the 12th century). In 11th-century England, travelling barber surgeons attempted to supply medical care to the ordinary population, often at the risk of the Church persecuting them for witchcraft.
